However, I have bought a few treats for myself when the urge strikes. I want to be prepared for having restricted calorie foods available (we still have halloween and christmas candy tucked away that I want to throw away, but DH says " no" he wants to nibble on them).. Anyway, I did stack up on 24 cups of Dannon Light & Fit, yogurts and a box of Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches (if you've never tried they are quite good and only 1.5 g fat). and other little low fat/no sugar treats (jello, pudding).. Yoplait smoothie mixes ...you get the idea
Well guess who wants to SNACK on my treats?? At first I didn't say much or even give it a second thought. But I did grocery inventory last evening, figuring I would stop by the store on the way homw. Holy Crap, where has everything gone?? Now I know it's not our dogs, so that leaves one other suspect in the house..
The Confrontation:Me: Are you eating my diet snacks?
DH:: What are you talking about?
Me: What am I talking about? Half of my skinny cow's are gone?
DH: Maybe they escaped into the yard
Me: Verry funny.. where is my left over smoothie from this morning.
DH: Oh, I thought that you didn't want that.
Me: Did you ask me if I didn't want that?
Me: String cheese, Special K protein meal bars... how where they?
DH: Good, but can you try not to buy the strawberry ones.. a bit sweet..
There was a time that I remember hiding my secret treats from the kids, NOW i have to hide my low cal emergency food from my husband!!!.
No.. I won't do that .. but I am not going to stop buying my Special k bars..that's where I draw the line.
I guess I won't tell him I have been cooking low fat for the past few months.. Oh Honey, that hasn't been ground beef in that chili.. it's been ground turkey..and the pasta.. whole wheat.. as is the bread.. Skim milk and no fat half n half..
Oh well.. could be worse..
